Legal Support in Andover, Massachusetts


“I walked into Jamie's law office just about a year ago. Looking like and feeling like a deer in the headlights. I literally didn't know which end was up. My divorce had taken me by surprise, I had been married for 23 years -and apparently oblivious to . I needed the best legal representation I could find ( you find this out very quickly the first time you go to court). Thankfully I got the best representation with Jamie, Nick, Nichole. First the calmed me down, got me to focus and guided me through the process of the court system, judges, lawyers, custody and on and on. They got me out of the hole I was in and then to even ground then got me into a advantageous place. Jamie did this by focusing on a strategy and staying the course and never giving up. I have been to court more times then I can or want to remember. Each time gets a little easier because I trust Jamie and Nick . I knew/know everything would be ok. We "won" ( Nobody really wins anything in a divorce) all of the important matters. Don't get me wrong we took some hits as well but they turned out to be fairly minor in terms of importance. I feel incredibly fortunate to have Jamie James representing me. I have the utmost confidence that she and Nick and Nichole have my back. It also doesn't hurt that they are all incredibly likable people. If I had to do this all over again ( i pray I never have to) I would choose Jamie in an instant.” – Greg
“I can't thank Atty. James enough for everything she has done for me and my case. She has been representing me now for over year in a custody issue after my explosive divorce trial. I had poor representation during my divorce so my case has been difficult, time consuming and emotional. But, she has gone above and beyond what she initially signed on for and has been a godsend.

She really fights for her clients. Her tenacity, caring and responsive personality is what keeps me hopeful everyday. She has worked very hard on my case and continues to do so everyday. I can't imagine have anyone else in my corner right now. Her legal advice and representation has been amazing even in the toughest of situations. If you want someone in your corner fighting for you, hire Jamie James. She is by far the best attorney. Her office and staff are responsive and knowledgeable. In addition, I would highly recommend her associate Atty. Nick Halks. He is tough, but very professional, personable, and experienced.” – Lyllian
“Jamie and her team handled some ongoing issues I had with my ex. She is a no-nonsense lawyer and knew how to best represent me given my situation, and was able to not just fix the situation but also left me better off than I was before, in terms of both parenting time and finances. She was well worth every penny and I wish I had hired her in the first place.” – Gina
“Jamie has been representing me through my divorce with the utmost professionalism. She is very attentive to any and all of my constant needs. Jamie has a great knowledge and history with Judges in the area and also knows the history of many of her colleagues. I am proud to have her represent me. I highly recommend Jamie and her coordinated team for future representation.” - Charles
“Jamie and her team did an exceptional job with my divorce/contempt case. Jamie was available most of the time and offered good advice. Her court room strategies proved to be the difference in my contempt case. She was thorough and left the defense attorney speechless. Jamie handles herself professionally and is very caring about all aspects of the case, she adds that personal touch which showed me she was listening and actually cared about all of the people impacted by my case. I would highly recommend Jamie as an attorney who will work hard for your case.” – Anonymous
“Jamie and her well trained staff have been representing me for some time now on a complex divorce case. She has been up front and open with me throughout the process, and has fought for my rights as a father with great diligence and perseverance. She is always available, nights, weekends, you name it, and will help you through every step of the process, including general guidance on what you should be doing as a parent (not just a client)! She is very knowledgable, experienced and has demonstrated the ability to navigate through complex matters and properly represent them in court. When she is in court, her staff is able to keep the momentum going on the case so it never feels like my attorneys are unavailable, and even continues to communicate with me throughout the day. If you want a legal team that will be the best advocate possible for your family rights, I would strongly recommend your search stop with Jamie, she and her team ranks as one of the best.” – Mohamed
“Attorney Jamie James literally came to my rescue and saved me. I filed for divorce after a 32 year marriage when I learned of my husbands infidelity. Attorney James spent countless hours on my case. She answered every phone call and email even on weekends and late evenings. She was extremely professional in and out of court. Every bit of advice she gave me and recommendation that she made was in my best interest. She kept me informed of all exchanges with the court and opposing attorney. The attention and detail she gave to my case made me feel as though I was her only client. If it hadn't been for Attorney James and the other attorneys in her firm I don't think I would have fared as well as I did. She fights hard and fair. Thank you.” – Anonymous
“I would HIGHLY recommend Jamie James in any divorce case especially when children are involved. Her care, passion and effort for the best interest of the children is outstanding. She fully understands the law and is 100% reliable to settle a divorce for the best outcome for her client.” – Kelli
“Thanks to Jamie and her staff for guiding us through a difficult situation. With Jamie's expertise and personalized attention she was able to achieve more than we could ever hope for. Although sometimes she may appear a bit abrasive, she has only your best interest in mind. Jamie will have you step back from the personal aspect of your case and allow you to find the true facts necessary to build your case. She approached our case from every angle and shared information that we had not even thought about looking at. What lawyer calls you on Sunday morning or late in the evening because of something she thought of. That is pure commitment. We are extremely happy with the outcome of our case to date.” - Lillian
"My decision to hire the office of Jamie James was, by far, the best move I made in a rapidly building storm of unfortunate and difficult circumstances. Jamie and her staff, particularly her associate, Nick Halks, are consummate professionals of the highest order. They have provided me with outstanding guidance and advice throughout the early stages of a very frightening and intimidating process. They have made themselves available for even the most mundane of questions, even making time on weekends to respond and put my mind at ease. They are always and exceptionally well prepared for court and have never failed to surprise me with their thoughtful, personal support for me as a client, and, more importantly, a person. They've worked tirelessly on my behalf and earned my complete faith and trust. I recommend Jamie and Nick without hesitation." -Jeff
"Sometimes life throws you a curve ball. As that ball was being thrown, Jamie James and her office staff were able to help me get my life back together. Having been married for 23 years and then being told by my husband that he no longer loved me, I thought my life and all I had was over. Jamie James was not only knowledgeable but also compassionate. She kept me informed and fought for me every step off the way. She delivered what she promised. Going through a divorce is Never easy but Jamie James and her staff, sure can ease some of the pain. My husband and his attorney would NOT settle and we were being forced to trial. Jamie tried in every way to promote settlement. She recommended we use a conciliator and set up several meetings to try and work out all the contested items at a 4way (my husband-his attorney, Atty James and -I). She was professional and responsive to all my questions and needs at the meetings. In the end, we did settle and did not go to trial. I am confident had it not been for Jamie's advocacy, I would have never made it and have the lifestyle I continue to have today. Meet her, she is one in a million!!" -Judith
"Jamie James is a life saver! I was going through the worst time in my life with my divorce. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't of gotten through it. I was able to get everything I wanted in the divorce. She explained to me each detail of my case and gave me great advice. She was there whenever I needed her to be, even would stay late for me to work around my schedule. If she wasn't in the office to take my call, it wouldn't be long before getting back to me. She made sure I understood each and every detail of my agreement. She owned it in the courtroom!" -Viola
